Alba, sleeps 51-66, Meribel

A family specialist chalet hotel in one of the best locations in Meribel

Alba

A family ski specialist runs this chalet; to book into this chalet you must have at least one child in your group.

The Alba is a Meribel institution enjoying one of the most sought after locations in the resort. The chalet hotel is located on the Rond-Point, the piste is literally over the road and skiers can glide over the ski bridge almost back into the boot-room. If that wasn’t enough, there is also a ski hire shop on site. The town centre is a bit of a walk away but the efficient resort bus service stops close by and runs until 11.45 in the evening.

The chalet hotel is very comfortable, the rooms all have their own en suites as well as a TV. There is a sauna, steam room as well as a whirlpool spa bath to soak those weary bones.

Winter 2018/19 Cuisine

Our staff prepare and serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3 course evening meal including wine and coffee, on five days a week, representing great value for money in any ski resort and giving you more precious time as a family. The staff nights off give you a chance to sample some of the delicious local restaurants an ensure that you don’t leave The Alps without your fill of Weiner Schnitzel or Fondue! Our baby listening service ensures that you can enjoy your meal out without worry.

Cuisine

One of the joys of choosing to take a catered chalet or Chalet Hotel ski holiday is that you’re not doing the cooking. Your staff prepare and serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3 or 4 course evening meal including wine and coffee, on six days a week, representing great value for money in any ski resort and giving you more precious time as a family.

High standards are set for cuisine, and the staff are trained extensively before the season starts, to ensure that guests will enjoy every meal.

Breakfast

In all properties breakfast is served buffet-style with a selection of cold options including a choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, and bread (an croissants in France) fruit juices, tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs and beans.

On the one staff night off per week, a continental style breakfast is served as a buffet.

Piste Picnics

The Chalet Hotel teams can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge.

Afternoon Tea

Every day, apart from the one staff day off, a home-baked cake and tea and coffee making facilities are laid out for you to help yourself when you return from the slopes. We also prepare a homemade soup and a savoury treat to accompany the sweet ones.

All the same, we will be offering a daily choice of dessert or cheese option to round off your dinner. You will also have an extra choice of Rose wine in addition to the Reds and Whites offered.

Special Diets

A vegetarian main course is always available in Chalet Hotels. Vegetarians staying in both our Xtra and regular chalets can also be catered for, as well as any other specific dietary requirements in all properties, if advised in advance.

Special diets can be accommodated at a cost of £35 per person per week. Please notify of your dietary needs at the time of booking.
